Inspiration Messages to Younger Generation:

  • As a young entrepreneur, l understand how important it is to stay motivated. Motivation is what keeps you work harder and harder every day until you reach your goal. I have been motivating myself by thinking “Be an employee while a student, an entrepreneur while an employee. ” We have to empower our passion to reach further than where we currently are.This has pushed me to learn to work while I was a university student and to team to be an entrepreneur while I worked as an employee. As the fruits of my success l have well established SOPHIYA Corporation, whichconsists of four business segments including SOPHIYA Travel & Tours (, U&Me Spa (, SOPHIYA Home (, and TLC Nails ~USA (www.tlc-nails.coml.
  • I always tell young people that “nothing is impossible BUT no success comes without working hard, DREAM BIG! THINK BIG! ACHIEVE BIG!”
